Default Max Starks getting first start of the season?

Smith still didnt practice yesterday and Starks has taken all the reps so far this week at LT. My guess is that he probably gets the start this sunday. Nothing announced yet, but I would be interested to see what he can do.

The Bengals RDE Antwan Odom hasnt exactly lit up the sack numbers with 1 so far, so might be nice to get on the field against lesser competition. I'm not a big Starks fan, but he should be able to manhandle Odom who only weighs 260lbs. Lets see Max earn some of that $$

well it seems tomlin is being consistant. essex went agains jax cause of a favorable match-up (for a gameplan that required more passing than the norm).

starting starks would tell me grinding it out with the run will be the primary focus.

This will really mess with his "per play" averages...I think he was averging a million per snap...

Hey. I really hope that Stark does a great job out there and shows everyone he is worth 6-7 million a year........... Maybe he will take this opportunity and make the best of it

So much for being the most expensive backup in sports behind Andruw Jones of the LA Dodgers!

Who are we talking about? Oh, that's right, Max Starks. Forgot we had him.

I thought he did good last year spelling Smith in the playoff game. I think he will do a good job against that crappy D.

I still wish I could find a job like his!

Its official. According to the P-G. Starks is gonna get his chance to start at LT this week.

I wonder if that means that Tony Hills will also dress as a backup?
